Fatima takes inspiration from everything above and below the clouds, sounds and visuals from past to present. She loves soulful sounds, funky, dirty , bouncy shit,  sounds smooth like silk and raw like ODB, appreciating the best of all worlds. Now residing in the midst of east London she’s continuing her musical journey from dark basements of London town to traveling across land and oceans to  greek blue waters and palm encrusted streets in the city of angels in the name of peace and love.
